For a Completely Comfortable Visit – IV Sedation
Some patients find themselves dealing with anxiety over their dental appointments, despite Dr. Ray's gentle touch and concern for your comfort. But you don't have to just "deal with it." At our office, we strive to relieve fear and worry and make treatments easy for you with sedation dentistry.
Dr. Ray has partnered with a dental anesthesiology company to administer IV sedation right here in our office. IV sedation provides the highest level of sedation and takes effect very quickly. It allows us to have more control over the level of your sedation, which is a big advantage over simply taking a pill. Most people who have this method of sedation don't remember their procedure. Time seems to fly by! A one-hour appointment can literally seem like two minutes. The medication is administered directly into the bloodstream, producing deep sedation and an unawareness of the procedure. The level of sedation is very accurate and safe. The technique can be used for long appointments that involve more extensive dental work, as well as to alleviate the concerns of fearful patients.
It is our goal to have you comfortable and relaxed throughout your treatment.
